Tiny House on Wheels - Council Guide

Tiny House on Wheels - Council Guide

In recent years, there has been increasing discussion within the community – and in some cases in court – around whether or not the Building Act applies to tiny houses on wheels (THOWs). In an attempt to provide more clarity on this topic, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) has released the Tiny House Guidance for the Building Act 2004. This Tiny House Hub resource aims to help you understand the MBIE guidelines, so you can determine how your tiny on wheels fits into all of this – and how you can give yourself the best chances of your tiny NOT being considered a building by your local council.
